Carol was the envy of all her friends. They complained how their husbands wouldn’t let them do this, or demanded that, on and on a long list of grievances that Carol had never experienced.
Carol felt blessed.
She had met her husband as a child and they had been together ever since. Never a harsh word, never an argument, never a moment of dissent.
If she said; “Let’s go to the lake this year…” he would say, “Alright,”
If she said, “Let’s paint the house blue,” he agreed.
Once, after one of her friends went through a diatribe about points of view, Carol confronted Jamey.
After repeating what she had heard, questioning and confused; Jamey replied;
“I have always trusted your judgment,” in his flat clear way.
This was not in any way, untrue. When it came to his life, his current life, he had no opinion.
